This company was expected to unveil KRYPTOSPHERE™, an ultra-conductive, ultra-high-strength proppant technology engineered to maximize and sustain hydrocarbon flow at high closure stresses for the life of the well, at the 2013 SPE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, taking place in New Orleans, La. Reportedly developed in response to a request from a major operator in the Gulf of Mexico, KRYPTOSPHERE can deliver more than twice the baseline conductivity of bauxite-based, high-strength proppants at 20,000 psi closure stresses.

“KRYPTOSPHERE will significantly improve overall fracture conductivity or space to flow, resulting in more production, increased recoverable reserves and greater returns for the operator,” said Don Conkle, vice president of Marketing and Sales. “CARBO’s expertise within materials science and manufacturing has enabled our team to develop this more conductive and more durable proppant technology, which is expected to be significantly less erosive to downhole tools and assets during pumping.”
